Melinda Clyde Greenwood
Greenwood said the new book she has written was done out of necessity, not the
desire to at some point become a New York Times bestseller.
“Oh no,” she laughed. “This book is designed to
help gifted and talented educators come up with techniques and lessons that are
very easily implemented in their daily lesson plans.”
Greenwood, a 2000 graduate of Harrison County High School and the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. James Clyde, is currently working for the Ft. Thomas Highlands School District in its Gifted and Talented Program.
“There are a lot of available resources that can be found ‘out there’,” she said. “But there is nothing that teachers can pick up and use immediately.”
She said her book, titled, Ready, Set, Go: A book of ready to use projects and activities for gifted and talented learning in grades 4-8, has been in the works for about five years, but has just recently been self-published.
“I had this idea to have this book published, but really didn’t have the time to get all that done, until the pandemic hit,” she explained.
She said that she inquired at several publishing houses, but decided to publish the book herself, through an on-line site.
“A few publishing houses liked what I had completed, but they wanted to make some pretty significant changes, which I didn’t want to see happen,” Greenwood said. “After the pandemic hit and I was working from home, I has a little more time to get the project completed.”
She said the information contained in her book comes from her own experiences as a gifted and talented teacher, along with suggestions from other G&T teachers that she has come in contact with over the years.
After high school, Greenwood earned her undergraduate degree from Transylvania University in 2004, then got her Master’s Degree from Georgetown College in Gifted and Talented Education, K-12.
She has been in public education for 15 years, beginning with a five-year stint in the Bourbon County School District where she was the gifted consultant and began teaching fifth-grade students.
She met her future husband, Chris Greenwood, during that time. After the couple married, she agreed to move to the Cincinnati area where Chris worked. It was at that time that she began working for the Ft. Thomas School District.
The couple has one child, five-year-old Myles, who just graduated from pre-school and will begin kindergarten during the 2021-22 school year.
For her part, Greenwood has no designs of making a small fortune on her new book.
“I figured other teachers like me could use a resource like this,” she said. “That’s really all I wanted to accomplish.”
Bill Selin played “Taps” on his trumpet, Monday night at 9 p.m., at the Battle Grove Cemetery.

Even though we weren't together in person we still celebrated together.
We wore red to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease and save lives.
Because when we come together, there’s nothing we can’t do.
